Tons of flavor with very little work! I spent the day looking for bay scallop recipes online and inspired I came up with this keeper! Serve over rice or noodles.

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat half of the oil in a wok over high heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until it begins to brown, about 30 seconds. Stir in the marinated scallops, and cook until they are no longer translucent in the center, about 3 minutes. Dissolve the remaining 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in the chicken broth. Pour into the wok, and stir until thickened. Remove to a bowl.

  • Clean the wok well, and heat the remaining oil over high heat; stir in the onion, mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, and carrot. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, green pepper, and scallop mixture. Stir until hot.

Hi Lady Linda here with a correction of a misprint in the recipe! I use only 1 tsp each of both ginger and hot pepper flakes. My husband sometimes asks for extra spicy but the rest of the family value our tastebuds too dearly to burn them off! lol! Read More

Sure glad I tasted the scallops after cooked in the spicy sauce but before proceeding. It was horrible. I cut the red pepper flakes back to 1/4 tsp from 1 T. but it still fried my mouth. In all fairness I didn't have any Fish Sauce so used oriental Oyster sauce. Still the flavor was totally unappealing. Threw out the scallops and sauce and used the vegis in a normal chicken stir fry.

The recipe was delicious although a bit too spicy. Next time I would cut the pepper flakes to 1 teaspoon. I also substituted vegetable broth for all of the broths as that is all that I had. Read More

Loved it but ended up increasing broth to a can. We like sauce and found the amount of liquid in the receipe was not enough. I also increased vegetables. We liked the warmth of the red pepper and did not find it overwhelming but that is a result of the additional ingrediants. Will definitely make again. Read More

This recipe was too spicy and I like spicy foods. Will use 1/4 tsp. of red pepper flakes the next time. Did not have fish sauce so I used clam sauce. Added 1/2 cup more of chicken broth after I sauted the vegetables because I wanted more liquid so I could serve everything over rice. Will make again. Read More

This is a good recipe but I did use less red pepper flakes for the kids' sake!! I really like Asian food and love to find new recipes that are easy and I can cook at home! Read More

I made this with firm white fish cut in bite size pieces. My husband does not like "seafood" per se but will eat white fish. I used bok choy carrots yellow pepper and a couple small potatoes. It was very good! Next time will put over rice. I would say this is worth making again! Kind of spicy-but we love spice! Read More

This was pretty good. I cut the red pepper flakes in half and it was still really spicy and the ginger was a bit too overpowering for us. There wasn't much of a sauce to serve over rice or pasta I served it over couscous. Read More
